For the past three years, the Parnell Business Association has hosted its annual Chinese New Year celebration with an exhibition celebrating the Chinese zodiac animal for the incoming year.
2019 welcomes ‘Year of the Pig’, and 22 little pig artpieces are being created by well known artists and celebrities to be exhibited in Parnell galleries and select retailers for two weeks from 9-24 February 2019.
During the exhibition period, tourists, visitors and locals are invited to wander the exhibition in person and then place a bid online for their favourite piece.
In addition, the Auckland Lantern Festival is being held at The Domain in Parnell during the same period.
The exhibition will culminate in a live auction at Jonathan Grant Galleries on the 28 February 2019 to raise money for Starship – National Air Ambulance Service.
